@JoshRoehl  - upbeat positive dance track. Liking the lyrics too. Some solo instrument (Saxophone, Guitar?) halfway could enhance your mix.
Good luck with the summer hit  ::thumb::

I have said this before, Josh......you have a very unique and kind of campy thing going on here. I absolutely LOVE that little "dance, get up" interlude.....I can see you dancing...and having a blast.

You should check out a few threads here at the kitchen and let folks know you stopped by. That way you might get some more folks stopping by to listen to your funk.

It would be great @JoshRoehl if you posted your lyrics on here too for the benefit of our members who don't have English as their first language.

Lyrically it seems quite interesting but I think you need to work more on how the words fall. Some phrases sound rushed because you can't fit all the syllables into the rhythm. That makes things feel a bit sloppy like you've got 2/3rd's of the way in the song and not finished refining it.
